Abstract: This technical note presents an evaluation of the footprints of the IMAGE-2006 received imagery (as of April 15th 2008). The first coverage (2080 images) is nearly covering the full target territory (some small gaps, the largest one being the Porto Santo Island, Madeira, Portugal). The second coverage (1619 images) accounts for 96.5{\%} of the territory with Iceland and all Atlantic Islands missing plus a series of large gaps mainly in Scandinavia. Note that imagery was delivered as a union of country coverages rather than a truly European coverage. Consequently, some images overlapping two or more countries were delivered more than once. In addition, these duplicated images are not always exactly identical.
